The Colors of Fall

  When I think of Fall, I think of all the colors of leaves in my yard and surrounding me in our woods. They are just beginning to turn colors in east Tennessee. When I think of creating Fall jewelry, I naturally think of colorful leaves and leaf shapes. Of course, jewelry can be made any in color or shape imaginable. I usually make a three or four color Skinner blend cane of Fall colors and insert veins, a center vein, wrap the cane in another color or black and shape the cane into a leaf cane. Cut into slices and make jewelry. I like to use Brass or Copper chain with the design. Here's some examples:
